UPDATE: I did some internet research over the weekend and found a reference to placing a piece of electrical tape on the 5 o'clock position connector on the trailer's plug. This is because some late model vehicles, like Audi, do not turn on the trailer plug unless trailer lights are sensed. The 5 o'clock connector is for the brake lights and the 90250 does not want anything connected to it's output at the 5 o'clock while attempting to pair the remote with it. So, with the 5 o'clock position "disconnected" and the trailer plug attached to the back of the 90250, my Audi sensed the trailer lights and I was able to pair my remote.
The pairing problem is ridiculous and a solution should be found for this from the factory. Older folks don't want to fool around with trying different vehicle/trailer combinations until the thing pairs. I had trouble pairing it for my parents, and it didn't work the first time. I called the tech line, he told me to verify the voltage at the trailer plug and try again. I measured the voltage, (the 12V feed line is hot from the factory on this vehicle and required nothing further as far as wiring or connections or fuses added) and the voltage was 13.8V so I knew I was good. I tried to pair again and it worked. Not sure why it wouldn't work the first time. The instructions say to roll the adjustment wheel down until OO shows on the display. Well it never would change from N.C. to OO no matter how the adjustment wheel was set. But yes it did pair finally. This is a great idea, the product works good, but in todays technological world of plug and play, this thing is outdated and clunky since it doesn't come out of the box ready to use (pairing required). I know the Tekonsha have solutions for how to get it paired, but the solution is that pairing shouldn't be a problem to start with. Tekonsha, find a solution to this and you will have a winner. Don't continue to blame the user, make it foolproof so that the user can, well, use it.
I mounted the box on the top of the trailer tongue because on the side is where the jack is mounted and there was not enough room. I also mounted it backwards compared to the diagram in the instructions. At first I thought either of these issues might have caused my problem with pairing, but the helpful guy on the tech line checked, and neither of these issues are problematic, and the unit has performed fine (braking has been fully functional) with the unit mounted this way.
When trying to hook the trailer wire to the newly mounted RF box, the first thing that happened was the cord retaining notch mounted in the lid broke off. So now my trailer cord can become unplugged from the unit because there is nothing to keep it plugged in. I used some electric tape to keep the cord from backing out. Just what you wanted from a $300 brake controller. I will be calling back to the tech line to try to get a replacement cap.
Yes this thing is a great idea. Yes it works and stops my trailer. Yes I would recommend it. Yes it has issues that need addressed.
Yes it is far better than screwing a clunky controller under my dash.
I very carefully followed the instructions, multiple times, with two separate vehicles, both with fully functional and tested connectors, with no luck pairing. On eTrailer I found the instructions below, which worked the first time. For a $250-$300 controller, for which ~$200 of the cost is for the wireless, it is completely inexcusable for the manufacturer to supply such stupidly inadequate instructions. I think the issue is almost ubiquitous for vehicles with LED tail lights, which are now common.
Thanks to Mike at eTrailer for the following:
1. Connect the RF unit to the tow vehicle, but do not plug the trailer into the RF unit.
2. Plug the hand held remote into the 12 volt power port (cigarette lighter).
3. Turn the gain to minimum by rolling the power wheel towards the cord of the hand held. The display may show just a flashing .n.c. - not the 0.0 mentioned in the instructions. You MAY NOT see 0.0 at this step.
4. Press and hold both the boost and manual buttons at the same time. The display will start counting down from P5 to PA. When the display shows PA, release both buttons and apply the brake pedal within ONE second. The display should change to a flashing 0.0. The control is now paired.
5. Set the Power Knob to greater than 0.0. Display will flash n.c. (not connected).
6. Connect trailer 7-way connector to the power module. Display will now be .c (connected)
